    forms (2000)

    I have a series of forms with command buttons on them that will open up other forms that I use as menus. I have one form that does not act like the other forms. When I click a button to open up a form then close that form, the form that I clicked the command button on appears behind a main menu form. What causes the form to go to the back and how can I fix this?
    Thanks.

    Check whether one or more of the forms has its Popup property set to Yes. A form with Popup = Yes will always remain in front of forms with Popup = No. (If you open several forms with Popup = Yes, their back-to-front order is determined by the order in which you open them.)

    All 3 forms were all set to no, so I changed 2 of the the last forms that are opened to yes. Now it works like I wanted it to. It was working with all the forms set to no. So it is a mystery to me what had changed to cause the second open form to go to the back.
    Thank you for your help.
